IMG Academy cruised to their sixth win of the season, winning easily last night against Clearwater by a score of 25-2. Junior attackman Jonathan Thelen led the charge, scoring an astounding nine goals and notching four assists. He was joined by teammates Jackson Costello, Connor Griffin, Tyler Liotta and John David DiSciorio who each tallied three goals apiece. Goalie Parker Smith only had to make 4 saves in the defensive effort. With the win, IMG Academy improved to 6-1 on the year.
Pleased with the scoring distribution, Defensive Coordinator Jason Basso said, “We had really good ball movement today which got a lot of different guys into the scoring column.”
Additionally, IMG Academy also improved in the ground ball category since their last outing against Alonso. Basso added, “We drastically improved on our face-offs in this game, which in turn led us to getting to more ground balls.”
The matchup with Clearwater was the first of four games this week, so IMG Academy will have no time to rest. IMG Academy returns to action tonight with a tough test against Massachusetts’ Thayer Academy. The game will be held at David Martin Field in Clearwater, Fla. at 7:00 p.m.
